Paulista Avenue, Sao Paulo
(4.4/5 based on 19,000+ reviews on the web)
Experience the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the city by walking through Paulista Avenue, a 3 km (2 mi) thoroughfare notable for headquartering a large number of financial and cultural institutions. This important city avenue houses an extensive shopping area, as well as Latin America’s most comprehensive fine art museum, the Sao Paulo Museum of Art. Located in one of the highest parts of the city, the avenue is clustered with radio and TV stations, and is served by numerous subway and bus lines. Once a popular residential neighborhood, the avenue is flanked by lavishly ornate mansions, former homes of the city’s most powerful coffee barons. Bumper-to-bumper traffic is frequent in this area even outside peak hours, so avoid visiting by car or taxi. By using our Sao Paulo trip builder, you can arrange your visit to Paulista Avenue and other attractions in Sao Paulo.

  • Avenida Paulista is a must for tourists and visitors. In it are located, malls, museums and the best restaurants. On Sundays the Avenue is closed to free movement of people, cyclists and skaters. A family-friendly program and without cost.

  • Av Paulista and its 3 km long, bring plenty of options for who this tourist in São Paulo. With two large malls and many galleries is ideal for those who want to shop. Is also close to the Rua Augusta, known for being a super evening chime. The SÃO PAULO MUSEUM of ART and the Home of the roses are good options to see exhibitions. In the surroundings you will find several good restaurants.
